iTRAQ-based quantitative proteomic analysis of Macrobrachium rosenbergii hemocytes during Spiroplasma eriocheiris infection.
Nanjing, China. In J Proteomics, Jan 2016
Up-regulated proteins included vertebrate gliacolin-like protein, vitellogenin, Gram-negative binding protein 1, alpha2 macroglobulin isoform 2 (a2M), etc. Down-regulated proteins, involved with beta-1,3-glucan-binding protein (BGBP), immunoglobulin like, Rab7, lipopolysaccharide and β-1,3-glucan (LGBP), actin-related protein, etc. Selected bioactive factors (tachylectin, α2M and vitellogenin, BGBP, C-type lectin, LGBP and Rab7) were verified by their immune roles in the S. eriocheiris infection using real-time PCR.
Stress responses from the endoplasmic reticulum in cancer.
Miyazaki, Japan. In Front Oncol, 2014
More recently, the mitochondria-associated ER membrane (MAM), which is a site of close contact between the ER and mitochondria, has been shown to function as a platform for various intracellular stress responses including apoptotic signaling, inflammatory signaling, the autophagic response, and the UPR.
The Notch transcription activation complex makes its move.
Baltimore, United States. In Cell, 2006
These structures show that the ANK domain of Notch is an integral part of the transcription complex and supports MAM binding, whereas the RAM domain may trigger allosteric changes in the structure needed for the derepression of transcription.
